|Respect the process.|
When we're in the thick of it, the process of getting to the next level, going higher, becoming all we can be, can be a tedious, never-ending series of ups and downs.
Yet, think about everyone you know who has achieved greatness. Was it easy? Was it fast? Was it time-consuming? Did they probably want to give up? More than likely, yes to all of those questions. Nevertheless, we have to respect the process of going to the next level in whatever area we want success to happen in. And no matter who we are, there is no way we're going to be successful without God. It doesn't matter what it looks like and who appears to be living large. Without God in our lives, forget about it, we're not really successful. Just know that God allows certain things from certain people and doesn't allow certain things from certain people. He's a God of order, decency, and excellence. He will have His way. “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts" (Isaiah 55:8-9).
We have to follow Him as He orders our steps. . "For God is not a God of disorder but of peace—as in all the congregations of the Lord’s people" (1 Corinthians 14:33); "But everything should be done in a fitting and orderly way" (1 Corinthians 14:40). Thus, the people who follow God's mandates are better off, because God blesses His process.
